The Importance of Testing Your Pool Water

pool water testingIf you are a pool owner, you should already have a strong understand of why regular testing of your pool water is so important.

If you are a relatively new pool owner, or are considering buying a home swimming pool, you need to gain that understanding so that your pool remains clean and safe for you and your family.

Make no mistake, testing the pool water can be confusing. It can be complex. A balanced pool keeps the water safe and can also keep your pool corrosion-free, adding to the life of your pool’s liner.

One of the first things to understand about water testing is understanding your pool water. If you are using a salt-based pool or a chlorine-based tablet pool, pH balance is crucial. Without proper balance, your pool sanitizer will likely not be as effective. In fact, pH levels that are too high can render your pool’s chlorine ineffective. This means your pool may be home to bacteria, even if it’s not visually apparent at first.

Balanced water is tied to your pool’s safety. Too much chlorine can be damaging to your skin and eyes.

Then there’s the cost-effective aspect of testing pool. Safe water means less chance of costly pool cleanup.
